Courtesy of the lady with the cardigan, I have been let in to the secret a remarkable archive of old architectural images, open to the public.
I’ll link to it later, but at the moment, we’re all still scouring it for gems, as like the Waterways Archive, the indexing seems – curious.
In the meantime, where was the above image taken? It’s classified under ‘Burntwood’ – but doesn’t look Burntwood to me.
This is a remarkable historical resource, and I’ll let you into the secret later. In the mean time, just look at these two images of very nearly lost local buildings in a light we’ve never seen them.
If you know already, don’t spoil it 😉
My thanks to the lady in the ganzey with pockets full of hazelnuts.
